Silverton Welcomes New Chef

The Silverton Hotel and Casino is welcoming a new chef for its Twin Creeks Steakhouse Room.

The hotel has named chef Paul Vigil to the post. Vigil most recently worked as the executive chef at The Capital Grill at the Fashion Show Mall. He's also worked for famed chef Michael Jordon at his restaurant Rosemary's in the Rio Hotel and Casino. Vigil also worked at two restaurants at Wynn Las Vegas and was a chef instructor at the Creative Cooking School.

Twin Creeks Steakhouse is one of several restaurants inside the resort including the Seasons Buffet, Sundance Grill and Mi Casa Grill Cantina. 

Local Pizza Joint Named Best Pizza in the State

Local Pizza Joint Named Best Pizza in the State

Las Vegans have long known that Metro Pizza offers some of the best pizza in the city but according to the editors of Food Network Magazine the local chain is also the best pizza in the state.

The Mulberry Street is the best pie according to the magazine. The pizza features breaded eggplant and ricotta cheese. The editors spent six months trying to find the best pies around the country from the basics like sausage and cheese to more elaborate concoctions like the Wild Nettle and Pecorino Pizza in California. All that mattered was that the pizza was delicious. The entire list is available in the magazine's September issue which goes on sale August 9.

Many restaurants have suffered in our economy but Metro Pizza has done well, in July it started work on its eighth restaurant in the valley's northwest side. That new location is expected to open next year.

Restaurant Critic:  KYARA – First Bites

Restaurant critic John Curtas gives so-so review of restaurant serving up the newest trend in Japanese food.

KyAra is not as good as Raku nor as fun as Ichiza, but ELV is fairly certain you’re about to read that it is from his Eating Las Vegas co-authors — who will no doubt be effusive in their hyperbolic praise for a place that’s not nearly as fine as it wants to be.

Curtas: Breakfast at A Taiwan Deli

A cheap breakfast hits the spot for John Curtas.

ELV knows he’s supposed to start every day with a healthy and hearty breakfast, but ever since he was a mere sprout, he’s never been much up for the task.

Restaurant Critic: All’s Well With CHINA MAMA

Restaurant Critic: All’s Well With CHINA MAMA

Despite rumors of things going wrong Restaurant Critic John Curtas says all is right at southwest standout.

This just in: Rumors of China MaMa’s demise have been greatly exaggerated.

About every six months or so, ever since it arrived on every foodies’ horizon, ELV gets an inquiry or a gripe or a snarky comment about how “…it’s not as good as it used to be…” or “I hear they lost their chef…” or “…something’s wrong…” or…or…and every friggin’ time we truck over there, either alone or with Slapsie Maxie, and confirm the place is just as smokin’ as it always was.
